Friday 5th April

Due to the significant erosion at Dawlish Warren, Teignbridge District Council is advising extreme caution when visiting. The dune path between groyne 10 – 18 is unsafe and a section of this path is completely closed with no access. Access to Warren Point and the bird hide is only possible via the beach with the risk of being cut off for a period either side of each high tide. The only access, up and back down, to these areas is along the beach at lower states of tide.

An evening visit in wet and windy conditions saw 205 Oystercatcher in the estuary along with 20 Turnstone, 14 Redshank, five Ringed Plover, three Sandwich Tern, two Greenshank and a Sanderling. Earlier an Osprey was again in the estuary and at least three Wheatear were on site.

Osprey - Lee Collins. The loose primary feather shows this is the same bird as yesterday
